Abaft The Funnel


Published July 8, 2013


LibriVox recording of Abaft The Funnel, by Rudyard Kipling.

Read by David Wales.

"Men in pajamas sitting abaft the funnel and swapping lies of the purple seas." Thirty one early short stories by the master story teller Kipling. The listener should be prepared for some racist and other biased attitudes and language, common at the time of writing though cringe-inducing now. Some of the stories are a bit confusing because of Kipling's use of Indian terms and completely opaque slang. (Summary by David Wales and title page)
